*** begin quote ***

Syracuse (CNN/WSYR-TV) – Bobby Davis, an alleged molestation victim of Bernie Fine, recorded a phone call with the coach’s wife in 2002, according to ESPN.

SPN’s Mark Schwarz explained in an interview on CNN why the tapes were not made public back then.

“We did not go to authorities with the tape.”

Well shame on you and your organization.

I would hope that if I had such a tape, I’d have the courage and fortitude to bring it to the proper authorities. And I’d go with a reporter and a recording crew. (Supposedly you guys have those.) And, let the “proper authority” explain to the camera why nothing could be done. Argh! We’ve become a nation of sheep. You could have take that crew from the office of the “proper authority” over to SU and gone door to door asking for a comment. AND put their “no comments” on Sports Center every half hour.

Sports is treasured because it’s supposed to build character. You’ve demonstrated that’s a flawed view. It’s done nothing for you and your organization.
